One last shot of beautiful Carrie to share…
Things are moving fast around here (a move to Berkeley in a couple of weeks, a REBAR opening at a gallery next Friday night) and I see how challenging it is, in the throes of all this doing, to sit and be with any of it. There is an exhileration to all the doing, an energizing force (Matt and I have been awake at the ungodly hours of 5 and 6am eating cereal) and yet I miss the stopping and watching, the click-clack of my camera shutter on an aimless walk in the neighborhood.
I haven’t taken photos in weeks.
And that’s okay.
I’ve always loved the image of the farmer that has to let the land lie fallow at certain times so that the soil can regenerate. You can’t just keep trying to work the soil, it needs time to become rich and fertile again. I am considering a sabbatical from posting while I move, a time to “fill the well” as Julia Cameron would say, and get inspired again.
If you are in San Francisco, you will find us (Rebar) canning the Southern Exposure art gallery on Friday night, May 19th at 7pm. This is an ambitious and fun project that you can read more about here. Simply said, we will be creating a temporary canning operation that will harvest, process and can the gallery itself. Rebar will remove a section of gallery wall and can it in metal cans on-site during the opening and closing night events.
I will also be having an art sale! Email me if you are interested in buying any of my paintings (the prices will range from $150 and up depending on the size) I can email you a collection of images that are for sale. (Only a few on the site are for sale, but others will be)
